Hello all ...Check out the photo below ...Pal and I were out ice fishing last season and the Citation got a little warm from working in the heavy lake snow... :explosion: Was just wondering if this has happened to anyone elses Citation...couple guys have said it is a pretty common issue with the old girls...I was thinking of getting a piece of Stainless to repair it and maybe get SkiDoo Laser cut into it for some venting of the heat..if anyone could post pics of how they remedied this issue I would love to have a look ..

Thanks in advance..

I'm guessing your belly pan should have some heat reflective tape on it where the exhcust is close to it?
That would cure your problem.
